Cougars Split Games, McNeely Throws No-hitter
The Rector Cougars got a standout performance from senior Hunter McNeely last Wednesday, as he threw a no-hitter against Ridgefield Christian at the Rector Sports Complex. Giving up just one un-earned run, the boys in blue took the conference game by a final of 8-1.
The next day they were on the road to Strawberry to take on Hillcrest, and fell by a final of 10-4. Appearing for RHS on the mound were Sam Simmons, Nic Mesa and Evan Dooley. Conley Lockhart drove in two of the Cougar runs, while Mesa and Chris Hufty each had a pair of hits in the loss. Tuesday they were scheduled to visit Maynard, although final score and stats were not available as of press time. The RHS squad is slated to take on Ridgefield Christian again on Thursday, at Jonesboro.
